Truck lopsided

The front end of my truck is sitting uneven. It leans to the passenger side. I measured it with a tape measure and there is roughly a 1.5 inch difference between the driver and passenger side fender well and the actual tire. Busted shock or a cracked leaf?

Leaf bushings might be shot.

Did you look at the leaf springs to see if they were cracked? Shocks don't hold the truck up, so I don't think it's that. I would say a weak or broken leaf in the spring.

I glanced at it today. Didn't notice any I'm gonna get under it and inspect it a little better when this rain moves out. What's involved in replacing a front leaf? I go so many things I want to do to this truck and so little money. It's mechanically sound and runs awesome. It's just small routine maintenance things. Ball joints, front u joints, I need to pull the front diff and re seal it since it's leaking, new tires, and now possibly front leaf springs.

Cab mount bushing are always suspect on the OBS as well. Measure from the frame to the ground and compare to your body measurements.

Measure from frame rails to ground. That will tell you if it's in the suspension or the body mounts
